“Mentoring” can be a daunting word. But in the mind of one Entrust staff woman, mentoring is really just about relationships. Over the years, she’s benefitted from honest relationships with women and in turn, has built real-life relationships with younger women. It’s a beautiful story with no end.
If you work with, care about and desire to better understand women of a generation younger than your own, check out Organic Mentoring.
Entrust reviewer Kayle Miller says, Organic Mentoring gives insight into the girls “on the other side of the epic divide” between generations. Read her review.
What makes someone beautiful? We love this blog post, proving beauty shows itself in endless forms and unlikely places. Who do you know who is beautiful? Whether they’re older or younger, live nearby or far away, are similar to or vastly different than you, tell them how beautiful they are, today.
Every generation is important in the family of God. We at Entrust encourage you to keep making and building friendships with people older and younger than you. Here’s good reason to love and appreciate those who are older, maybe a lot older, than you.
No matter what age you are, you’ve got to deal with people of different generations sometimes. Old people make no sense to the young. The young, same thing to the old. Whether you’re a boomer, buster, millennial, Xer or some other generation of your own designation, you can learn from others. We’ve posted ideas for getting to know and learning to appreciate people of other generations on our website. Check it out!
Our year of cross-generational friendship is complete! If you’ve tracked with us all year, congratulations and thank you. Now it’s time to compile our findings. Please post some of your key take-aways from this year. What have you learned from your cross-generational friend? How are you different as a result of this year’s investment? What will you do differently next year in light of your findings?
If you’re just discovering this initiative, welcome. Go back and check out some of our questions and challenges, then find someone of a generation other than your own and dive in. It’s never too late!
